PostSubject: The Ultimate Fighter Season 20: Episode 1   Wed Sep 10, 2014 9:49 pm


By Rich Davie
@RichDavie
September 10, 2014

Tonight is the premier of "The Ultimate Fighter 20: A Champion Will Be Crowned" show on the FOX Sports 1 network, and will be airing at 10:00 pm ET.

I think this season of TUF is likely to be one of the best seasons ever, and as usual there will be two teams competing against each other.

Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez are the coaches this season, but I think most of us are more interested in and will be tuning in to see the competitors rather than the coaches.

This season of TUF is not like prior seasons, and for the first time ever this season will feature an all female cast of competitors in the 115 lb Strawweight division... and for the most part, they're already well known and established MMA fighters if you are a fan of women's MMA.

Several of the competitors are former Invicta FC fighters, and quite a few MMA fans feel is the most exciting division in Women's MMA.... which will make this season one of the most talent rich seasons, with some of the best female fighters... and when all is said and done, there will be an inaugural UFC Strawweight champion crowned in the UFC's newest division when two semifinalists meet at "The Ultimate Fighter Finale" in late 2014.

As a long-term fan of MMA and a long-term supporter of women's MMA, I'm very excited to see how this season of TUF unfolds, and who will be crowned the UFC's Strawweight Champion.

...and for those who aren't aware of who is on this season of TUF, here are the fighters on this season's all-female cast :

Carla Esparza : (9-2) 26 years old - USA
Felice Herrig : (9-5) 29 years old - USA
Angela Hill : (1-0) 29 years old - USA
Joanne Calderwood : (8-0) 27 years old - Scotland
Bec Rawlings : (5-3) 25 years old - Tasmania
Tecia Torres : (4-0) 24 years old - USA
Rose Namajunas (Na-ma-Yu-nas) : (2-1) 22 years old - USA
Jessica Penne (Penny) : (11-2) 31 years old - USA
Alex Chambers : (4-1) 35 years old - Australia
Aisling Daly : (14-3) 26 years old - Ireland
Lisa Ellis : (15-8) 31 years old - USA
Emily Kagan : (3-1) 32 years old - USA
Justine Kish : (4-0) 26 years old - USA
Angela Magana (Ma-Gan-Ya) : (11-6) 30 years old - USA
Randa Markos : (4-1) 28 years old - Canada
Heather Jo Clark : (6-4) 34 years old - USA

I mentioned on The Ultimate Fighter Season 20 On 'The MMA Live Chat Show' that it seems like the last two ladies I mentioned above we're a source of friction for several of the other ladies in the house... with Heather Jo Clark winning the title of the least likely to win new fans and friends according to what quite a few of the other ladies on the show had to say when asked in a recent interview as to who was the one person they had the most problems with.

If you're interested in watching the video I just mentioned, it was posted on The Ultimate Fighter FaceBook page... or you can use a search engine to search for "Heather Jo Clark is not a particularly well liked girl in the TUF house."

I'm also interested to know what the fans and you guys think about this season of TUF.

So who you think the 2 semifinalists will be, and who will be crowned the UFC's Strawweight Champion.

Round 2 was all Markos !

I've got round 2 :

10-9 Markos

Making this one 19-19... and it should go to a sudden victory round.

Markos damn near got the GnP finish on Torres in round 2 !

That was an awesome comeback after round 1.

Once Markos landed some of that GnP on Torres, Torres was very reluctant to mix-it-up... that's what did her in.

If Torres would have been as aggressive as she was earlier on in the fight, she would have won the fight since the 3rd round was so close.
